Last night, I went with my girlfriend, my parents, and my sister and brother-in-law to see Dwight Yoakam at the Lerner Theater in Elkhart, Indiana. I tell ya, for 63 years old, Dwight can still rock the stage. He cranked up some Merle Haggard (my all-time favorite), played some of his newer stuff, and of course hit us at the end with his classics, like "Honky Tonk Man" and "Guitars, Cadillacs". All in all, definitely one of the best concerts I've ever been to.
Speaking of best ever, the card on display tonight isn't the "best ever", but it's the lowest numbered Shawn Green card in my collection now. Check it out:
|2004 Leaf Certified Cuts Marble Blue #102|
The scanner washed out the holographic Dodgers logo in the middle, but trust me when I say that it's actually a pretty stunning card in hand.
I'm not one to chase particular serial numbers. I just can't get into that. I'm happy to have any number that I can get. In fact, there wasn't even a back view of this card in the listing. So when it got to me and I saw it was numbered 25/50, I did get a little kick out of that.
This is one of those mid-2000s products that has 37 billion parallels, so I doubt I'll ever land the entire rainbow. But should I decide to go after it, well, having the copy numbered out of 50 isn't a bad place to start.
As always, thanks for reading, and have a great evening.
